Cooking and Baking Tips

1. Always use organic ingredients when possible!
2. Read food labels, know what is in your food.
3. Beware the soy and soy lethicin. Too much soy is BAD! If your bread has more than 4 ingredients don’t buy it!
4. Organic and preservative free foods do not last as long, so only buy what you need for a couple of days/week.
